Altar Boys And Mass Attendance

Well, this here  makes for interesting reading. 

Of course, this is not an official statistic. Of course, this cannot have the same weight as a full research. 

But boy, does it not tell the same story we see a bit everywhere, where the credibility of the priest and the size of his congregation is also determined by the exclusive presence of male altar servers? 

I wonder what our Bishop of Rome, unluckily reigning, thinks of this?

  1. Note: this item and the survey are NOT about Mass attendance. The (admittedly unscientific) survey is about how limiting altar servers to just boys increases dramatically the number of kids who serve.

    There’s no data that I’m aware of that says this has any impact on the number of people attending Mass.
